Mete Erker & Jeroen van Vliet are among the top of the European jazz music scene.
In 2019 they are celebrating an anniversary, playing together for 30 years, in a wide variety of musical environments: from a straight-ahead jazzquartet in ’89, collaborations with South African trumpeter Feya Faku, up till a program for church-organ, reeds and modern dance in 2008. Both are also members of the innovative quartet Estafest. Many of these projects and bands were recorded, and as a duo they recorded an album in 2004: Unseen Land. Impressionistic music inspired by the work of Dutch painter Mattie Schilders.
April 2019 their brand new duo-album ‘Pluis’ has been released containing new compositions and creative improvising and poetic beauty.
